Why do the heathen rage?

Mostly it’s because they can’t quit Donald Trump.

And what I mean by that is, the left screams its head off every time Donald Trump says something, does something, or tweets something.  Trump has a press conference?  REEEEEEEEE.  Trump nominates a Supreme Court justice?  REEEEEEEEE.  Trump tweets?  REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

I think back to the last president I actually paid any attention to, and it had to be Reagan.  I’d tune in to presidential press conferences and addresses to the nation and even the State of the Union because I loved hearing that voice — cultured, sonorous, measured, intelligent — and even more loved hearing what that voice was saying.

Bush 41 was a wannabe in Reagan’s shoes, Clinton was a good ol’ boy redneck hack, Bush 43 was a nice guy and said a lot of good things but in the end was ineffective, and Obama was a commie who hated America.  Not much to listen to with any of those guys; I could get the gist from the conservative commentators in places like National Review and The American Spectator (before both magazines went down the toilet).

But the bottom line was I never paid much attention to what they actually said, didn’t watch or listen to them say it, and so far as I was concerned they were generally just words on a page to me because they weren’t saying anything I really wanted to hear.

The proggie left, though, apparently spends a lot of its time watching, listening, and reading everything Donald Trump has to say or otherwise express, and it makes them absolutely go REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!  And then they do stupid things, like beat up Republicans, run Republicans out of restaurants, throw bricks through the local GOP committee’s windows, run conservative speakers off campus, and (of all stupid things) block traffic on busy interstates with their bodies.  (Glenn Reynolds was 100% correct when he tweeted, “Run them down.”)

Oh, and running through Washington, DC, on Inauguration Day, vandalizing the hell out of things and then being surprised when they find out that in doing so, they’ve committed actual federal crimes with some serious jail time attached — and the local federal judges aren’t particularly interested in letting them off the hook, although most of them did end up having charges dropped for insufficient evidence.

I’m not one to make with advice to progs very often, but folks, you’d be a lot calmer and cooler-headed (and a lot more likely to influence the undecided and win elections) if you’d follow one simple rule:  Pay no attention to Donald Trump.

But far be it from me to correct the enemy when he’s making a mistake.
